Four months to go to Valentine’s Day but love is most definitely in the air at one Dorset-based recruitment agency.

Mploy Staffing Solutions is hosting the Ball of Hope, a Valentine’s black-tie evening at Bournemouth’s Hilton Hotel in Bournemouth on Friday February 7, 2020. Tickets are now on on sale.

The evening includes a three-course dinner followed by entertainment from a live band.

A live auction and mystery raffle will raise funds for local charity Hope Housing, Training and Support Ltd, which supports homeless and vulnerable adults into safe, supported accommodation.

Matt Swift, Mploy’s Co-Founder and Director said: “Hope is a charity we’ve supported over the last 12 months and we are so pleased to be holding this ball in their honour.

“We’re looking forward to raising some much-needed funds for them, while also highlighting the fantastic work that they do on a daily basis. I would encourage all local businesses to get behind this event.”

Julie Berti, Chief Executive Officer of Hope Housing said: “Mploy have shown such amazing support over this last year and this event will be the icing on the cake.

“Sadly, we see an ever-increasing need for our services and funds raised from this event will help more homeless and vulnerable adults to be supported in our county.”
